Barrel Of A Gun

Do you mean this horny creep
Set upon weary feet
Who looks in need for sleep
That doesn’t come
This twisted, tortured mess
This bed of sinfulness
Who’s longing for some rest
And feeling numb

What do you expect of me
What is it you want
Whatever you’ve planned for me
I’m not he one

A vicious appetite
Visits me each night
And won’t be satisfied
Won’t be denied
An unbearable pain
A beating in my brain
That leaves the mark of Cain
Right here inside

What am I supposed to do
When everything that I’ve done
Is leading me to conclude
I’m not he one

Whatever I’ve done
I’ve been staring down the barrel of a gun

Is there something you need from me
Are you having your fun
I never agreed to be
Your holy one

Whatever I’ve done
I’ve been staring down the barrel of a gun
